, two of the three organizations testifying today did not exist. and the third, the f.b.i., was a very different organization than it is today. focused on domestic crime as it had been for quite a while. obviously in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on america of 9/11, 2001, congress and the executive branch created the department of homeland security and then pursuant to the 9/11 commission recommendation created the national counterterrorism center. the f.b.i. essentially recreated itself into a first rate domestic counterterrorism intelligence agency. in addition to carrying out all its other responsibilities. in his absence we should thank director mueller for what i think is an extraordinary job he's done in overseeing this historic transformation and to thank the two of you, secretary napolitano, and director olsen, for what you have done together these changes represent the most significant reforms of america's national security organizations since the 1940's, at the beginning of the cold war. it's not coincidental since after 9/11 we understood we were facing a very diffe

to the state department that there were increasing security concerns in benghazi? the fbi says it is too dangerous to be in benghazi, which is why none of them are there now. is that because the situation has worsened, or was it always too dangerous? >> as we determine the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. that is when i came to that conclusion. as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is ongoing hopefully will determine that. >> about a day after? >> it took a while to get some feedback as to what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a threat intelligence reporting back -- eight to read -- there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups were seeking to coalesce, but there was not anything specific, and certainly not anything specific to the consulate that i am aware of. as far as the risks of the fbi reported, you really would have to ask them why they made that determination. >> did you make the state department awa

think that is more however a law enforcement, f.b.i., justice department sort of role to investigate those domestic terrorism. homeland security is more responsible for guarding our borders, northern, southern, people coming by water and people coming by air. as well as a lot of coordination with local law enforcement. so, they have some law enforcement responsibilities, but if you're talking about going to investigate a group who you think may -- guest: congressman, i need to jump in we need to go to the white house where they're going to d a moment of silence. we'll come back to our discussion. host: a moment of silence this morning at the white house with the president and the first lady. you heard the bells ring at 8:46 a.m. eastern time. the time when the north tower was struck by those airplanes 11 years ago. fearly 3,000 americans died -- nearly 3,000 americans died that day with the attacks on the world trade center and attacks at the pentagon here in washington. our cameras are up in new york where the world trade center memorial service today, also there on your screen you

that threatens the safety and liberty of the sih community. while the f.b.i. tracks the overall number of hate crimes, it doesn't target sikhs despite that we are seeing that sikhs are singled out because of their appearance and faith. that's why this resolution denounces the violence befallen this community or calling on the department of justice to finally be documenting and quantifying hate crimes against sikh americans. as many as three out of four sikh boys endure torment and bullying from their peers and so we're educators across the country to help end violence. and we're erging law enforcement officers in every locality to do all they can to prevent violence against this and all communities. america was founded on the principles of religious freedom, acceptance and tolerance. let's make sure that every american can live safely and in peace. let's make sure that every american is protected. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. poe: thank you, mr. speaker. over the last week, we have watched as

circumstances. this is a job for the fbi, not the cia. by the way, by and large, most of the information that we knew, we knew it about the guy coming in to try, and it was derived from foreign. our base of knowledge of him was foreign intelligence. to me the right entry point was enemy combatant, n.h. -- agent of war, deal with it that way. the roots of the information are that we should treat this as a law enforcement problem. in broad measure, my sense is that that is how we should do with it. thank you all for coming here this afternoon. i hope you have left with more questions than it had and you came in. that was my intent. they you for giving me the opportunity.

on defense. also on the f.b.i., on border security. you know what, we had a proposal to pay for part of that to prevent the sequester with the buffett rule and some other cuts. our republican colleagues talked about the terrible consequences of the cuts but they just don't want to pay for them. they don't want to ask the american people to contribute one more penny. thank you, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan, mr. levin, reserves. the gentleman from michigan, mr. camp, is recognized. mr. camp: i'm prepared to close. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan, mr. levin. mr. levin: i've been thinking this is really mislabeled. why don't we call it the mitt romney rule act of 2012? he paid the return he indicated less than 15%. he earned many, many millions. he knew what the code now says. he could have sent some of the money that was not taxed to the government. all he had to do -- he could use a credit card. but he hasn't done that. so i mean this is mislabeled. it has nothing to do with mr. buffett. there's
